Big Book: Urashima Taro


Immerse yourself with your eyes, ears and whole body

The Big Book is precisely that - a children’s story that literally unfolds into a gigantic single sheet, revealing a beautiful illustration of something central to the story. The redesigned children’s fairy tale adds another dimension to interactive storytelling, allowing kids to explore a story as if they are inside it.

Fujimoto’s beautiful illustrations are accompanied by text in both Japanese and English. So not only is it great for storytelling, it’s also useful for learning another language!

Urashima Taro is the beloved Japanese fairy tale about a young fisherman who rescues a turtle and is then taken  to a fantastical sub-sea palace.
